Toshiba’s Click 10 offers budget convertible computing

Tablet/laptops that offer 2-in-1 convertibility are one of the more popular consumer technological trends at the moment, so it’s no surprise that in connection with the unveiling of Intel’s new line everyone’s been showing off new systems that utilize those chips in the back end. Toshiba has been much the same, but it’s also looking to more traditional internals for its budget offerings. Witness the Click 10.

This 2-in-1 comes fitted with a much more mainstream Intel Atom x5-Z8300 processor and 2GB of LPDDR3 — which is unfortunately not upgradeable by the end user. However, this is not a power user tablet/laptop combination and is instead designed more like a Smartphone+, with a 10.1-inch 1,080P HD display and up to 64GB of storage — though there is a cheaper 32GB option also.

It’s also an incredibly portable piece of kit, weighing in at just 2.2 pounds with the keyboard attached, and if unclipped, the tablet portion weighs just 1.2 pounds.

One of the big selling points that Toshiba is pushing is Windows 10 compatibility, which both versions of the Click 10 come with at launch. With that in mind, several features of the tablet combo are said to enhance the Windows 10 experience, with in-built multi-directional TruTalk microphones and an 9MP rear camera and 2MP webcam to make voice calls and video conferencing easy and high quality, and not requiring a headset.

To make sure the user can still hear the person on the other end, as well as any entertainment they watch on the Click 10, there’s a pair of stereo speakers which support Dolby Digital Plus as standard.

In terms of connectivity, both of the new convertible laptops come fitted with two USB 2.0 ports, a single micro-HDMI, a microphone/audio port and a docking connector. Wirelessly, there’s support for 802.11/a/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1. Power comes from a twin cell 22/5Wh li-ion battery, which delivers up to seven hours of battery life.

Both versions of the Toshiba Satellite Click 10 will begin shipping on September 25, starting at $350.
